Give the Gift of Pride

Give the Gift of Pride is a national campaign to support young LGBTQI+ people travel from rural locations to Dublin to march in the Dublin Pride Parade. 

Young people have told us about the struggles and challenges they face growing up in rural villages and towns. Getting the chance to come to Dublin Pride allows them to be their authentic self, connect with the national LGBTQI+ community and see that there is a big, safe, inclusive and welcoming world outside of their towns and villages waiting for them.

  • Give the Gift of Pride and support young people living in rural communities to travel to Dublin to march in Dublin Pride.
  • A once-off donation of €30 will help cover the cost of travel for one young person from rural Ireland to participate in the Dublin Pride parade. 

Each year Youth Work Ireland welcomes hundreds of young LGBTQI+ people to their Dublin Offices to take part in a Pride Breakfast and get Pride ready. This event is colourful, fun and life changing for some. Help us to continue to run this important event by giving the gift of pride.
